I have a 3 part question:
What year did Lawrence Taylor hold out during training camp signing just 4 days before the start of the regular season?
LT played in the first game that year who was the opponent?
How many sacks did LT have that game?



ok........this is all off the top of my head so........

Im almost positive that hold out was in 1990....

.....pretty sure they played the Eagles at home....

.....Ill say 2 sacks......

2 out of 3 nice job......the # of sacks is wrong


maybe 3 sacks?


.........who caught Elis' first completion last season?
</P>


I'll say Kevin Boss.....just guessing</P>


When Simms went down in 1990 another QB [not a Giant] went down the same day. It looked like he was done for the year at the time but he came back in the postseason. Anyone remember who it was?</P>
I thought Simms got hurt in a game at San Fran, so I would have guessed Montana. I'm anxious to see who it was, although I'd guess an AFC HOFer would have to be Kelly

didnt Harbaugh go down?

I thought Jim Kelley got hurt in the regular season game vs us. I may be wrong though I remember the field being icy.
</P>


Yea it was Kelly against us if memory serves correct. He came backlater in the season [obviously] but as we all know Simms was done for the year</P>


How many TEs did we start out using on offensein the SB 25 game against the Bills?</P>

we had 3 TE's... Bavaro, Cross, and Mrosko. I'll say we started with 2 TE's at the start of the game... BUT, I smell a trick question and the answer could likely be zero... truth is (although I was at that game), I can't remember.

I was with my son, standing at the goal line at the first row of seats, on the right side of the posts. As the ball passed the posts I couldn't tell if it was wide, or good. I looked out on to the firld and saw the Giants jumping up and down and knew it was NG. What a great feeling.

The Giants have had 4 Super Bowl appearances and we have had Season tickets since the 50s yet we never won the "lottery" for the chance to buy Super Bowl tickets. Maybe next time?

We were eligible for tix in '86-'87, but couldn't get to Pasadena. My nephew livesd in Tampa for '90-'91 so we drove down there and stayed with him. It was great. Desert Storm at the time, so there was heavy security checks at the gates. Whitney Houston sang the Star Spangled banner and the feeling of patriotism in the stadium was unreal. We sat about 30 rows up at the goal line, 2 rows in front of Len Berman. I couldn't understand why he had such crummy seats. When Buffalo was driving for the winning FG we walked down to the bottom and stood by the wall at field level. My heary was sinking as Norwood made the kick. What a relief... wide right, and we were right there.
We didn't win the lottery for the Ravens or Patriots, so watched it on the tube, which was OK. At least I got to one.

It's good to know that real fans actually get a chance to go to a Super Bowl. What a great time you must have had. Nobody that sits around me has ever gotten the chance to go just like me. BTW I sit in sec 117. Like I said maybe next time.

Just going by the conditions of the day, I'd have to say Rodney had more yards. I remember it being rainy/icy and QBs were dropping like flies. That said I have to go with Rodney getting the TD.

We are section 111/112... 2 seat at the 36 and 37 yard lines, Giants side, 19 rows up. If we were 5 rows higher up we'd be under the mezzanine and get some cover when it rains. We are trying to get seats in the new Loge area in the new stadium. It's a neat looking place when you look at the view from the virtual set-up. We qualify for the primo seats but there's I figure that, with our seniority, we might actually get near the 50 yard lines... no way we were going to spend $20,000 for a seat.

I've never wonthe SB ticketlottery either. I was lucky enough to get to Phoenix for SB 42. It was a miracle howwe got the tickets @ face value. Found out we got them on the Monday before the SB but my wife had already made all the travel plans after I guaranteed her we would beat Green bay in the NFC championship game. For me ,SB 42 was the culmination of a dream</P>

Im almost positive it was Frank Reich holding for the infamous wide right.....

Zimmy could tell you first hand.......



in that Bills game Simms and Hostetler combined for 165 yds
and Hampton had 105 yds....so they didnt have much more than him.....

the only TD was scored by OJ

TYes, think it was Reich, but who their holder was was the last thing I paid attention to. I was praying for a block. Geez, poor Norwood, the guy has suffered a million curses. Can anyone think of a more famous missed FG? Although if Tynes hadn't redeemed himself at GB he would surely have been dead meat to Giant fans.

I would have guessed about 10. I would have been way off. I looked it up and will only put it up if someone else doesn't get it after a while.

Finished the Glory Game, by Frank Gifford... a great read. The biggest surprise to me was how the players didn't consider Jim Lee Howell to be their coach.... they felt he was useless. The only coaching they got was from Landry on D and Lombardi on O.

What head coach has the most all-time victories, and how many?

wasnt that an awesome book Zim?


Id say big Steve Owen is the winningest coach.....as far as how many.......he coached the team for over 20 years....so it has to be well over 100....

Owen is right, YA. Coached 23 years. Had 151 wins. Thecrazy thing is that there were years with only 10 games (the war years) several years with 11 games (I wonder why 11?) many years with 12 games, and a year with 13 games and a year with 14 games. I guess in these early years of uncertain survival for many teams, before each season they had to take stock of what they had and then compose a schedule.. Owen had 15 winning seasons, 5 losing, and 3 of even wins and losses.
Can you imagine Head Coach for 23 years? I wonder if that is a record. I'll have to see how many Halas had

Ya gotta read Halss' bio... just incredible. $0 years a coach and 324 wins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Halas
The man had an incredible career. Played for the NY Yankees for a cup of coffee in 1919. Was MVP in a Rose Bowl, held the NFL rec ord for longest fumble recovery for a TD (98 yds) from 1923 to 1972. Drafted George Blanda in '49. Blanda played til '75, so he played in 4 decades.

23 years is insane.....

that could never happen now a days.......

you know Steve never had a contract......he coached every year on a hand shake....ah the good old days....hahahaha

....a great story in the Glory Game was when Gifford was talking about training camp....when he would walk past Lombardis room and he would be working on plays.... he would go by Landrys room and he was working on Defensive formations......and when he went by Jim Lees room he was reading the paper.......hahahaha always thought that was funny.....

I guess a lot of players didnt consider him the coach......they say he took roll call and thats it....

I know its pointless .......but sometimes I wonder what may have been if old Vinny (as they called him) could have gotten out of his contract in Gree Bay like he wanted to.......


i remember my old man thinkin very highly of Jim Lee.....even way after those years he would talk about how much he hated the way Jim would start every game with Heinrich then later put in Conerly though.......he swore we would have won more games if Charlie got to get into his rythm .....

anyone know the famous Quote from Tittle to Sherman when they were talking about going for it on 4th and 1?






You mean in the '63 Championship game? Even if that is what you are referring to, I don't remember...lol.

YA came to the sidelines and said....coach Ill hit the tight end with a quick pass thats better than any dive......

always loved that quote......


this is kinda vague but it just popped in my head thinking about some old games.......

any of you remember a technique Bob Tucker would use all the time to get open.....?

a little TE trick......he used it a lot around the goal line

I'm not sure if I remember right... all I can picture is that he would fake blocking down, on a play action pass, sometimes falling, or going down with his hands on the turf, and then scooting out for a short pass where no one would be covering him

in that hard fought 1963 championship game Tittles knee had been blown out and some could argue he should have been taken out of the game........

...what LB broke his arm in the first half of that game and never returned until the 1964 season.?

LOL the broken heart story reminds of the movie "Jaws" when Capt. Quint and Drefuss were trading war stories about fish and he pounded his chest said some girls nameand says she broke his heart. Then it got SERIOUS ..................when "Capt. Quint" said he was on the USS Indianapolis [ they delivered the Abomb] and were then sunk by a Japanese Sub.

I think that was Mary Jane Moffett who broke Matt Hooper's (Dreyfuss) heart.
That was one of the only parts I had a problem with in the movie... the fact that Chief Brodie didn't know about the Indianapolis.
The book also had a storyline that I didn't like, and which was deleted from the movie... Hooper and Brodie's wife shacked up... ugh... totally unnecessary for that book.

Tittle to Gifford for our only TD. That was before YA had his kneee crushed 2X.</P>


It was at least -5, and possibly colder.</P>


A sad, sad situation for YA. He was a warrior. They pumped him full of pain killers at half, but he was a shadow of himself. Sad that Griffing was the backup QB.

I always had this theory that if ole Charlie could have stuck it out for a couple seasons as a back up...........we coud have won that game...

YA had 5 picks in that game......very unlike him as a Giant.....

even talking about this today those same emotions come up......i wanted that game so very badly.

I remember my old man saying to me before the game....something like.....this could be Tittles last shot and he knows it......that got me so pumped up......he knew I worshiped YA.



in the 3rd quarter there was a famous 3rd and 9 play that the bears ran from the Giant 13.....

....a pass play to Mike Ditka who Halas is known to have said ...."could make it through Dante's Inferno" .....that got them to the 1 and set up the go ahead and winning TD.

.....anyone know the name of that dreaded 3rd and 9 play?

yeah I guess this one is a little out there........

the only reason I know the name of that play is because a friend of my fathers worked for the Bears in the early to mid 60s.......

he used to send us stuff like pictures the coaches took during the games of formations and play sheets....

he gave my father the actual play sheet that the coaches were calling plays from in that game.....

it was nothing like they look today...more like a couple index cards taped together.....

I remember him telling us...."this is the play that ended the game".......

he pointed to a play that had "Ditkas play" scribbled next to it.....

78-Y lookee pass......was the name of that play

I kept that card for a very long time.....and in the mid 80s had it framed and gave it as a gift to a friend who was a Bears fan.....Im sure its worth something today...I hope he still has it....



Erich Barnes had a nickname amongst the players...what was it?

It escapes me. I only know that he was considered a dirty player by opposing teams, and was also known as an Intimidator... so, maybe the Intimidator? (really reaching on this one, eh?)</P>

I have no recollection of him as a player though.....just him in a suit and fedora on the sidelines....

LOL Zim Mary Jane Moffet broke his heart Agreed on Chief Brodie , how could he not have heard of the Indianapolis however as a whole , it's one of the few times one could say the movie was better than the book</P>


</P>


My wife says she thinks it was Mary Ellen... I'll have to wait until it's on again to see, and see it again I certainly will. It's my wife's all time favorite movie and I'd be conservative to say she has seen it 30-40 times. One of those movies where you know all the dialogue. Yes, the movie was better than the book</P>



"Here lies the body of Molly Magee
Died at the age of 103
For 15 years she kept her virginity
Not a bad record for this vicinity"

I love that movie!

Kat is right......


he went to the hospital in the same ambulance as Gifford...

they didnt have xray machines in the lockeroom in those days.....if they did he would have never finished that game....

at the hospital they xrayed and found the broken collar bone was right against his jugular vein ...and he could have been killed at any point in the game if hit the wrong way....


as for what Eagle scored...I have no idea....i take a stab though.....and say.....one of the only names I remember from that defense....... Tommy Brooksheir (sp)...?

Brookshier was a good guess. The guys name was Jimmy Carr [DB] who scored the TD after Bednarik nailed Tripplet. Hard question</P>

Butch Woolfolk and Joe Morris were both rookies that year, but Wollfolk, being our 1st rnd pick, got much more play than Joe (funny how things worked out there), so I'll say Woolfolk</P>


Robert Shaw was Doyle Lonnegan in The Sting... a great movie.</P>


Piece of personal trivia... in The Deep, with Shaw, Nick Nolte, and Jacqueline Bissette...Nolte and Bissettestayed in a cliff top bungalow on Bermuda where the elevator scene took place.

YA, I know this one because I'm almost positive you asked it back around page 20... lol. It was a name I had totally forgotten until you resurrected it. As you pointed out, # 31, a very unusual number for a linebacker... Bill Winter.</P>


I just tuned in and saw that 'patsrule' was visiting. Good to have him around. It would be fun to have some early Boston patriots and AFL trivia here. I was an avid AFL fan when they started because my sister's fiance played for a cup of coffee with the new NY Titans. He had to retire because his knee was spaghetti from an injury he got in college his senior year at So. Carolina. One of those knee injuries, like YA in our '63 championship... "Geez, your knee is fubared, so we'll juice you with lots of novocaine and you'll be good to go in the second half."</P>

Is Sondra still strutting her stuff at the stadium? I haven't seen her in years. We walk down the aisle, lower level, at the 50 yd. line to get to our seats. From the first year, '76, she would be walking down that aisle and hanging over the wall (dang near falling over it from the weight of her boobs) and chatting with the players. Last time I saw her was about 10 years ago.</P>

Tuck had 2 against Brady, but he has only played in 1 SB, so that's it for him.</P>


Guys who played in 2 SB's would have had a better chance.</P>


LT's rushwas neutralized against the Broncos and Bills... I don't think he got a sack in either game.</P>


I think Strahan had 1.5 against Brady, but don't know if he had any against Dilfer.</P>


Marshall had 2 against Elway in SB XXI, and Marshall played in SB XXV. I don't know if he had any against Kelly, but chances are he might have had at least one, so I'll choose Marshall.</P>

That would be too sweet. let's hope it comes true because if Tuck can get 2, I'm thinking that bodes well for our D, and we win. Here's what I hope... Tuck gets 2 and Osi gets 4 and they are both tiedas our all time SB sack leader.</P>

Allie destroyed that team.....that would be like Coughlin today saying ...ok lets get rid of Pierce and Osi and a couple other defensive players and bring in some rookies.....

...and no Tittle was never the same after that hit to his knee.....I still have a hard time looking at that picture of him on his knees from the Pittsburgh game.....

time told the tale of the true damage that Allie did......we didnt sniff the post season for years and years to come......

This was an easy one for me, SEC. I was a big time AFL fan back in 1960-1970... the great years, with some really great talent. Fabulous games, especially the Chiefs/Raiders rivalry, and of course their using the 2 point conversion all that time. Old Gino Cappalletti led the AFL in scoring many seasons as a wide receiver and kicker for the Patriots, and Vinatieri broke his record.</P>

Adam Veneteri is the Pats leading scorer of all time. Who's scoring record did he break?</P>

This was an easy one for me, SEC. I was a big time AFL fan back in 1960-1970... the great years, with some really great talent. Fabulous games, especially the Chiefs/Raiders rivalry, and of course their using the 2 point conversion all that time. Old Gino Cappalletti led the AFL in scoring many seasons as a wide receiver and kicker for the Patriots, and Vinatieri broke his record.</P>


</P>


I liked the AFL too ZIM but I could not let on to my father LOL Secretly I admired Joe Namath [ I even wore white spikes in high school]. I meet Gino the night before the SB42 in Phoenix. He seemed almost mad at me for being a Giants fan LOL............He must have really beenpissed the next day[:D]</P>

Wow, YA. You say he played for us for 4 years? I have zero recollection of him. Like I said, guys with common last names truly escape my memeory... Smith, Jones, Anderson, Brown.The only reason I remember Homer Jones is because of Homer, and Roosevelt Brown because of Rosey. But, I'll always remember Dave Brown because I was so pissed he started ahead of Simms, and one of the worst all-time calls by an NFL ref when they called 'in the grasp" in a home game against San Diego... the first year of the in the grasp rule. Brown fades to throw... no one is open, so he scrambles. He is running downfield, wide openand, after about a 10-15 yard gain a defender dives at him, gets the top of his foot, and Brown shakes his leg to break free, and does, and the guy pulls his shoelace, and Brown keeps going downfield for more yardage. Oh, Wait!!! A ref blew his whistle. Brown was in the grasp. It was unreal.</P>

I probaly did catch him @ a bad time. It wasn't like we spoke for hours , plus he may have been sick of many neutral fans rooting for the Giants because they were the underdogs. I'll always respect the man for what he did on the field and I'm sure he's real agentlemenif you got to know him</P>

I think that was Jack Kemp's kid. I forget his first name. I actually had a friend who hated the Giants that told me if Rice doesn't fumble that ball when he was running a slant in the first quarter and heading for the end zone, that the 49ers would have won that game. To me it would have been 49 - 10 Giants. But to him, it was a turning point.

I got one that I don't have the answer to...

Who recovered that fumble in the end zone?

Roswell - yes, that was Jack Kemp's son. I totally forgot about him until you mentioned it</P>


I think it was Kenny Hill who recovered Rice's fumble in the end zone. Was at the game with my son and when the ball fell out of Rice's hands, unforced, and we recovered, we looked at each other in disbelief. Those kind of breaks just didn't happen for us. It was Karma, and if Rice had scored, yes, I believe the final score would have been 49-10. Your friend was right... it was a turning point. A turning pointfor the first quarter only, Amen...not the while game. we were just flat out more superior that day.</P>

Jack Kemp replaced Montana. Kenny Hill recovered Rices fumble in the end zone and spiked it. The place went nuts.

nice work guys........how about this one.....

1981 D line....

Roswell - yes, that was Jack Kemp's son. I totally forgot about him until you mentioned it</p>


I think it was Kenny Hill who recovered Rice's fumble in the end zone. Was at the game with my son and when the ball fell out of Rice's hands, unforced, and we recovered, we looked at each other in disbelief. Those kind of breaks just didn't happen for us. It was Karma, and if Rice had scored, yes, I believe the final score would have been 49-10. Your friend was right... it was a turning point. A turning pointfor the first quarter only, Amen...not the while game. we were just flat out more superior that day.</p>


When Burt hit Montana just before the half, to put him out of the game, who intercepted that pass and returned it for a TD?</p>




I think you are right on Kenny Hill...but did he recover in the end zone?.....for some reason I remember it being at about the 1 yd line...I could be totally wrong....

LT picked off that ball right?


you guys are always good at these.......


name this line that blocked ....(sort of).....for Joe Pisarcik in 1978


71 63 56 68 62

had to look it up... #71 was Gordon Gravelle, LT</p>

I put Mcgriff over Martin cus I think George only started like 5 games that year....

still had an impact though.....George always did




in 1979 the Giants put up 32 points against the 49ers......in a 32- 16 game

2 rushing TDs were part of that 32.....one by Kotar and the other by who?

there was also a safety in that game....how did that go down?

I think Martin came in on 3rd downs, while the beefy McGriff was in on 1st and 2nd. Martin had a decent number of INT's in his time... I'd bet that he is in the top 5 all time for INT's by a DE.</P>


Billy Taylor was our feature back, so I'll saythe BT Expressscored the other rushing TD</P>


I think John Skorupan got credit for the Safety on a 49er punt, but I think the ball went out of the back of the end zone, as opposed to Skorupan actually recovering the ball in the end zone... that's a hard one to clearly remember. I only remember Skorupan because I liked his name, and he was a decent LB.The poor guy had the misfortune to play RLB and was replaced in 1981by ?... the one and only</P>

Oh, what a painful loss, especially with the hated Randall Cunningham at QB for the Vikes. This was a boring game of FG's. We had control at the half and fell apart in the 4th Qtr.</P>


Our only TD was, I think, Danny Kanell to our decent TE, Aaron Pierce. I believe it was Kannell... Dave Brown and Kannell kinda split the QB duties that year.</P>

I had to look this one up, SEC. No wonder... a very disappointing Dave Young, TE from Purdue.</P>


I did remember we also got Mistler (3), Neill (5), and Byron Hunt (9!!), but I thought the steal was Clifford Chatman, RB from Central Oklahoma (4). He went to Oklahoma and was so dumb that he had to leave... can you imagine? Well, he was touted to be a steal. Only problem was he was REALLY dumb. They seriously had to tell him... "Cliff, you're running right, off tackle on this play," or, "Cliff, you're sweeping left on this play." He couldn't understand audibles and nearly got Simms killed a few times when he missed blocking assignments. He lasted 2 years and they had to let him go.</P>

I want to say Meggett but I don't think he was there in 89. That game killed me.

I've got the craziest question so far on this thread. You ready? What 2 last names of two former Giant linemen when put together give you the name of a costar from the original Batman TV show?

Sorry, I know that's nuts but I had to throw it out there.

Wow, this one is tough, YA.</P>


Hostetler got some snaps that year, but he is too obvious to be the answer. So, I would guess it was our punter, Landeta, OR could have been our PK holder, and I don't know who held for Allegre that year (don't think Landeta held). The only other choice would be someone like Meggett on a HB option.</P>


So, narrowing that all down, I'll guess Landeta... 1st choice. Meggett... 2nd choice.</P>


Regardless, it was a painful loss. I sat there stunned as Flipper ran through the end zone and into the wrong exit. I guess he had to walk all the way around, underneath the stands to get back to his locker room. I don't think he re-emerged out of that same doorway to celebrate with his team mates.</P>

in the game the next week......[;)].......who was the leading receiver.........?





</p>


Thank you, YA... that was great. It's been a while since I've seen those hi-lites. All that confetti swirling in the field, seemingly forever, was a great feeling.</p>


Game the next week? The only game after our Washington victory was the Super Bowl. Leading receiver? There were two Broncos that had the most recepetions. We had three guys... Bavaro, Carthon, and Morris with 4 receptions.</p>
The leading receiver as far as yardage goes was Stacy Robinson. Stacy never really did all that much in his career, but he did have a terrific Super Bowl. Kind of like Tyree in Super Bowl 42, sometimes the little used guy shines in the big game.

I don't know if you guys played video games back then, but because of that game Stacy Robinson was great in Techmo Bowl.


Techmo bowl was awesome........couldnt compare to todays Madden...but......those little squares running up and down the field.....priceless....hahahaha



in the 1989 divisional round loss to the Rams.......what player that wasnt Simms attempted a pass?






Z


I want to say Meggett but I don't think he was there in 89. That game killed me.

I've got the craziest question so far on this thread. You ready? What 2 last names of two former Giant linemen when put together give you the name of a costar from the original Batman TV show?

Sorry, I know that's nuts but I had to throw it out there.





gotta be Burt Ward...or....James O'hara.......but O'Hara is a current lineman so ill go with Burt Ward..

Brad VanPelt got to wear #10 cuz he was the Giants back up kicker.

Brad was an all around great athlete he could have played pro baseball, but he wanted to play football.
I know that a couple of teams tried to sign him right out of HS to play baseball. In football he was good enough to play safety, kicker, and was a phenomenal LBer.

I'm hoping Michael Boley is the same type of LBer that VanPelt was, Boley has 5 ints in his 4 years. I really am kinda excited to see Boley on the field in Giant blue.

His last regular season game, he scored. I forget who they were playing but I think that was the season that they blew the playoff game against the Vikings on a pass with like a minute left into the back of the endzone over Sam Garnes and then Calloway couldn't handle the onside kick.

1964,the 63 championship title game was played in jan of 64,3 years before i was even thought of[&lt;:o)]</p>


LOL good try Mr. Carpenter but the 63 Championship game was played in December [63] vs Chicago [@ Chicago]</p>




63 is the year....

also the year of the last Beatles performance at the Cavern [:)]
</p>


Paul Horning was famous for wearing number 5. The Saints also had a good running back who wore the same number [5] in the 70s. Who was he? LOL I'm off on a Saints tangent</p>

Cant recall any #5s on the Saints......believe me I have been racking my brain and cant even think of any position being #5........now I gotta know



....in Superbowl XXI what was the play that got McConkey to the 1 yd line?

and who was involved in the transaction?






Z

Was that the play where Bavaro tipped it and McConkey gobbled it up ?

I think it was a flea flicker. Simms handed the ball to Morris? and then he flipped it back to Simms who had Bobby Johnson wide open supposedly but he also had McConkey open and he hit him coming across the field from right to left. Nothing will ever top the first SB win in my mind, but they're all special.

Rich Karlis of the Denver Broncos in the 80s was one of the barefoot
kickers. Tony Franklin, who kicked with the Eagles, Patriots, and
Dolphins in the 80s was another, as was Mike Lansford of the Rams in
the 80s.

was it an 80s thing?....I havent seen anyone kick barefoot in a while

No Problerm, SEC. I was really curious. One of the few Saints who could wear #5 was Tony Galbreath, but I remembered him being a # in the 30's. I do remember Harmon Wages... prob because he had an odd name, but even if you had said the Falcons I wouldn't have been able to guess Wages as No 5without looking up their rosters in those years. </P>

I strangely dont recall this one but it does sound hauntingly similar to something Sammy Baugh said after a Redskin 73-0 by the Bears in I believe the 1940 Championship game.....and I believe wayne miller dropped a TD pass....

I don't think it was Montana that said that because I don't think Montana knew where he was after that game. The hit Burt put on him, when you look at the Giant highlight tape of '86, from the ground level it looked like Montana was hit by a truck.

I've never seen a bigger hit laid on him, unless you want to count Big Leonard laying him out in '90 in the NFC Championship. For some reason, I can't even see Walsh saying that because he was a proud guy and might not want to give the Giants that kind of credit. But he's probably the only guy that could have said it.

I've never seen a bigger hit laid on him, unless you want to count Big Leonard laying him out in '90 in the NFC Championship. For some reason, I can't even see Walsh saying that because he was a proud guy and might not want to give the Giants that kind of credit. But he's probably the only guy that could have said it.</p>


lol about Montana, Ros,not knowing where he was... probably not far from the truth. Can you imagine Montana's legacy if we don't beat the 49ers those two years.</p>


HEY, SEC... I'm dying to know the answer here. Hurry back!</p>


</p>


It was Bill Walsh Z. I don't think Montana was in any condition to make statements after that game. I always thought it was a Giant player who said that....not so though</p>


In the same game [49-3]3 differentGiants had interceptions , one is obvious , who were the other 2?</p>


</p>


LT had one which he ran back for a TD on the hit by Burt on Montana, and I remember Pepper Johnson getting an INT with a nice return, but I can't remember the third.</p>


</p>


Yup LT and Pepper were 2................................HW initials of the third</p>


Simms was like 9 or 10 out of only 20 passes but how many went for TDs? and which Giants caught them</p>



Herb Welch
</p>


Thats him Jints 10 , good old Herbie Welch. Remember how many TD passes Simms that game and who caught them?</p>


Z</p>




there were 4...i think......

Bavaro.....Mowatt.....McConkey........and for the life of me cant remember the last one.........

Zimmy throw me a life line.....hahahahaha
</p>


3 out of 4 ain't bad.</p>


Bobby Johnson completes the four.</p>


One of the most satisfying games of my Giant fan life. The smile started when J. Rice had the unforced fumble and didn't end for days... no, make that weeks!</p>


thats it!!!!!!.....Bobby Johnson...

we can always count on ole' Zim......nice

oh what a game that was.......I couldnt believe it was happening......I would never tell anyone this ....but I thought we were going to get blown out.......

i felt that way a couple more times as well.....in the 2000 NFC Championship game against the Vikings.......and the Superbowl against the Pats......

something inside just told me we would lose.....boy am I glad my gut feelings were wrong

I don't know if you guys have that game on tape but if you do I want you to take a look at that play. Simms throws a perfect pass to Bobby Johnson in the right corner of the end zone just before he gets leveled. When he gets up, Taylor runs over and congratulates him on the field (LT was on the extra point team). And then Jim Burt comes over to congratulate Simms. Burt is not wearing his helmet and you can read his lips when he says to Simms "Nice pass motherf#$%^&amp;. Simms, who you can't see, must say something like "Who caught it?" because Burt says, "Johnson, Bobby Johnson." Check it out. It happens right before the end of the first half. It's worth looking at.

I remember that very well, Ros. I even picked up on it during the original game. I think the guys on defense loved Simms toughness. In one of LT's books he talks about how his respect for Simms grew for his toughness and work ethic. Simms would hang in there until the last second, always focused downfield. Compare that to Fran Tarkenton who would start running the split second it looked like a defender would come free towards him.</P>

Fran definitely was a bit of a wuss...but remember he had a very small line in front of him...

he may have been killed out there if he didnt run..........

and all the films you see are of him scrambling ...but if I remember correctly that only happened maybe once or twice a game......

there is no doubt that he made that team better........

there is also no doubt that he didnt have an 8th of Tittles toughness...

Old Aunt Jean always said that the linemen told her they hated to block for Fran... never knew which way to block their man. They'd try to block the man out, and find out that that's exactly where Fran was scrambling to.</P>


Elvis P is as good as any guess I would have made... probably one of the safeties, or CB's, because I looked yesterday and Welch got credit for zero return yards on the INT.</P>

It wasn't hard for me to believe how badly Kerry was in the SB becausehe never could read a defense, and Kerry just couldn't read the Ravenblitzes. The following season was when Fassel finally took away Kerry's ability to call an audible... if Kerry didn't like a play sent in, he was as likely to audible into an even worse choice. I think one reason he was so much better lasy year was because, after all these years, his experience has served him well and he can read defenses.</P>


Thank's for the Paterno answer. I though you meant an ex-Giant boss. Yes, I remember Joe Pa recommending Kerry. I would trust Joe's word implicitly.</P>

I saw it in the first drive....Kerry had no idea what was going on....

Siragusa is quoted saying that he knew as soon as Kerry came to the line he knew the game was over cus he wasnt looking at possible coverages he was looking at the D line....and he looked scared....

and if i could see it over the TV...you know Tony saw it

Yeah, Kerry had that "deer in the headlights" look...lol. I've seen that only a few times, one being Lomax... his rookie year, and LT's rookie year. By the time St. Louis came to Giant Stadium, LT was already creating a stir in the league and, first play, Lomax looked over and saw LT ready to come, and no one to block him. Lomax damn near spit, and called time out. He was a beaten man from the first play.</P>

did they take him out because he couldnt handle the pressure?

or was he in mopping up at the end?

The Jets had to beat Greenbay for the Giants to get in the playoffs.

Tom Mullady caught the first TD pass.

wow how did I miss all that?

nice job jints.......good question to Zim......

and carpenters question to.....would have loved to answer that one.....




in the 2002 NFL draft.......the Giants had the 15th pick in the first round...

the Raiders were after Shockey and were trying to trade up to 14 to get him because they new Accorsi wanted him........

Ernie wanted Shockey so bad that he ended up trading a 4th round pick just to move up one spot so he could secure Shockey.......

who was the team that originally held the 14th pick ......?

Good job, Jints10, BUT I made a mistake... I forgot Ward, so that makes Eight (8) RB's who cracked 1,000 yards. Hint - the missing RB played under fassel and got 1,000 yds, in 1998.</P>
